  • Problem is that I cant stop at just one…..so yummy


  • The secret to a great ANZAC biscuit is to bake it for less time than a normal recipe says – that way they have a delicious soft texture and not too crunchy.


  • Yum!


  • I just love Anzac biscuits they are my favourite. Last time I made them I chopped up dried apricots and added them to the mixture. Family loved them.


  • Yum! Seriously my favourite biscuit and this recipe is great


  • A good reminder of how tasty, and how relatively easy it is to make Anzac biscuits.


  • I remember reading how to get chewy ones or crunchy ones, it was to do with the sugar. Brown for chewy, white and brown combined for crunchy. I think :/


  • Thank you! Home made is always much better ????


  • Thank you for sharing. Went to buy some recently, but none on the shelves. I will add the last few ingredients I need to make them, so will keep this recipe handy.


  • Who doesn’t love a good chewy ANZAC biscuit!


  • Nice easy to follow recipe.


  • I made these with my son on ANZAC day. A new tradition we will do every year after we attend the dawn service.


  • A good recipe to teach the little ones


  • I didn’t make any this year. I bought some from Coles knowing that a percentage of sales was supporting one of the Anzac charities.


  • This recipe brings back memories of my Nanna making these for my Uncle when he came home. He was discharged from the Army for being injured in the line of duty. He was shot in the head but survived even though they couldn’t remove the bullet. He died a few years later when he fell out of bed. When that happened the bullet shifted and killed him.
